When it comes to providing students “real-world” experience in the classroom, some schools stand out more than others. Consider the University of Kansas, where one interdisciplinary course teams geoscience and petroleum engineering students to analyze live data from partnering oil companies.

An intriguing program is afoot to assess the hydrocarbon potential of the Niobrara in south-central South Dakota. The assessment program was initiated in 2012, when the American Indian Higher Education Consortium funded a cooperative education program between the Sinte Gleska University on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation in South Dakota and the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (SDSM&T).

Virtual Short Course
Thursday, 22 July Sunday, 25 July 2021, 9:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.

This 16 hour course will include a mix of lectures, short exercises and discussion sessions. The content will be prepared to anticipate the likelihood that participants will have different levels of technical knowledge about petroleum geology. In addition to defining the main unconventional reservoir types, the course will distinguish between exploration and development drivers, and expose participants (through short, hands-on exercises) to other types of geoscience and engineering tools (Rock Eval, XRD, decline curves, etc.) of importance for unconventional reservoir characterization.

VG Abstract

This lecture will discuss the differences between carbonates and siliciclastics from their chemical composition through their distributions in time and space. Building on these fundamental differences, we will explore the challenges carbonates pose to petroleum geologists in terms of seismic interpretation, reservoir quality prediction, field development, etc. Peppered with humorous personal stories, still raging academic debates, and the heartfelt frustrations of real industry professionals, the aim is to inspire students and young professionals to rise to the occasion and embrace the reservoir rocks that petroleum geologists love to hate.
